Can contributions be altered for individual employees?

A NOW: Pensions scheme can be designed to meet different needs by offering increasing contribution rates over time and/or variable rates where an employer can offer greater contributions to different employees.

If an employer decides to change or add a different tier with different contribution rates than what they have already agreed to, they will need to contact employer support on 0 330 100 3399 to request an addendum to the contract.

If/when this is approved they can alter contributions by changing the Employer Contribution (ER CONTS) amount and Employer Contribution Rate (ER CONT %) within the payroll file.
